Welcome to FastPlaySports.com  We are so excited to start this journey into the world regional sports with a strong focus on youth athletics. Like all startups, it hasn’t been an easy road to get to this point but with perseverance we made it. This is the same determination that athletes use to overcome their hurdles in sports. This is why we feel youth athletics in particular are so important. It teaches so many valuable life lessons during a time that is critical in a child’s development. Kids will start to become the person they will be for the rest of their lives around the age of 13. We need to make sure this is a positive time in their lives....

The student debt crisis continues to grow larger and more dangerous. With the rising price for a college degree, students face an evergrowing problem of large amounts of debt post grad. This has been the status quo for a long time but the debt ratio is growing faster every school year and is becoming increasingly harder for students to pay back with an average balance of more than $27,000, according to a new report from the Joint Economic Committee. Interest rates on federally subsidized Stafford loans could double from 3.4 percent to 6.8 percent if congress fails to take action. “Allowing the interest rate on subsidized Stafford loans to double at a time when the government’s cost of borrowing is so low undermines the public policy objective of providing affordable loans to students,” the report explains. “The increasing debt burden presents challenges for recent graduates just beginning their careers and poses a potential risk to the economy, since individuals who shoulder heavier debt balances may delay purchasing a home, buying a car, starting a family and saving for retirement.” The top 10 are as listed below: 10. Pennsylvania 9. Michigan 8. Rhode Island 7. Indiana 6. Maine 5. Montana 4........

The stART of Basketball

Regular season football has come a close. As with all things in life, the end of one thing always brings the beginning of something else. In this case, that other thing is high school basketball. Here in Indiana, basketball is more than a tradition. It is much more. Those who play or have played understand this. Basketball is as much art as it is athleticism. The mechanics behind the dribble to pass to jump to dunk are astounding. The ability to throw a leather ball 23.75′ (NBA) or 19.75′ (high school) at a specific degree of arc into a 10′ high basket measuring 18″ in diameter repeatedly is art. Sports are often viewed entirely different than art. They are more often than not executed by two entirely different types of people yet they share the same passion behind what is they are doing in an area that only a small percentage of people are capable of doing. Sure, anyone can splash some paint on a canvas the same as dribble a basketball, but to do it with such style and perfection to be called professional or world class is rare. It takes discipline to refine any craft to the point.......
